Here’s a 3 minutes and 18 seconds Making Sure That Your Toothbrush Is Clean video. See full transcript below.
Your toothbrush is the main tool when it comes to keeping your teeth and gums clean. However, it is also possible that it can make you more prone to dental and oral health problems. Research shows that your toothbrush might be one of the most contaminated items in the household. Oral bacteria may thrive in the bristles after you brush your teeth.
Moreover, intestinal microorganism can also reach your toothbrush because of inadequate hand-washing or due to microscopic droplets from the toilet when flushing.
Using a contaminated toothbrush may threaten your dental, oral, and even your overall health. As such, it is important to ensure that your toothbrush is free from bacterial infestation.
You can do so by following these simple tips from your trusty dentist in Geelong. You should always be wary about where and how you store your toothbrush. Also, keep in mind that you wash your hands before you handle your toothbrush. In addition, soaking it in antibacterial mouth rinse has shown to be effective in limiting bacterial growth.
